maison margiela sml

Happy November, everyone. It's been too long since my last post and even longer since New York Fashion Week, but I finally got around to illustrating the looks from one of the shows, by Maison Margiela, which I'd been meaning to do for a while. I really enjoyed the vibe of this show. It was very sea creature aquatic chic meets Barbarella with a little androgynous rocker thrown in. I especially enjoyed how fabrics that were shimmery and loose managed to look sexy as items that are more obviously intended to be sexy like skinny pants or miniskirts. You guys know what I mean? Anyone else thinking loose is the new tight?
